- Configuring the USB Ethernet Adapter with Nintendo Wii
You can configure the USB Ethernet Adapter with Nintendo Wii by following the step-by-step instructions below.
Connect the USB Ethernet Adapter to one of the available USB ports on the back of the Nintendo Wii.
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 port on the Adapter.
Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to an available RJ-45 port on your router or switch.
Power on your Nintendo Wii by pressing the Power button on the front panel of the Wii.
Press A on your Wii Remote to continue through the Health and Safety Warning screen.
Starting on the Wii menu, navigate to the Wii button (Wii Options) and press A on the Wii remote to confirm the selection.
Navigate to the Wii Settings button and press A on the Wii remote.
Navigate to the Right Arrow on page 1 of the Wii System Settings and press A on the Wii remote to proceed to page 2 of the Wii System Settings.
Navigate to the Internet button and press A on your Wii Remote.
Navigate to the Connection Settings button and press A on your Wii Remote.
Navigate to the connection which shows "Wired" in the list. If none of the connection options show a wired connection then you can create one by selecting Connection 1.
Select Connection Test by navigating to the button and pressing A.
Navigate to the OK button on the Connection test to start the network connection. You should see a message that says "Testing Connection".
If the network test was successful, the message "The connection test was successful" will appear. If a connection test failure message appears instead, make sure the Adapter is connected properly to your Nintendo Wii and that all wired network connections are properly connected to your network.
